Direct Stream DAC History

Have there been any changes in the DSD DAC circuit or components from 2015 to 2018?
I sold my older DAC when I was in the failed “Downsizing” experiment and now I am buying another one that is a couple years newer.

Basically no.

The DS Sr has had no changes to the layout on the digital or analog boards. Availability of MLCC caps went nuts a few years ago, there are likely many different selections of MLCCs in the newer DSs. Logically and AFAIK these differences don’t affect sound quality. There have been a few other part substitutions caused by availability issues, but still no changes in sound quality.


Thanks Ted, good to know.
